My name is Victoria Mason and my role is Active Monitoring Practitioner and Volunteer Counsellor. You can contact me directly on 07983 645892 or via email:

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist having graduated with a Post Graduate Level 7 Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from the University of South Wales in 2016. BACP registered (Certificate No:195710) I am a professional and competent therapist.

I was thrilled to recently join the team of Active Monitoring Practitioners. I passionately believe that early intervention for adults who are experiencing mental health problems is both cost effective and most importantly, potentially life saving. To provide this service in my hometown is also vitally important to me.

The reason I work for Merthyr and the Valleys Mind is because I am a firm believer in supporting every individual to reach their full potential and am passionate about the importance of good mental health. Making a difference to the lives of others is very important to me, I genuinely enjoy helping and supporting others. As an articulate communicator, I am also able to mix with people from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures.

I believe that everyone is worthy of respect, value the opinions of others I meet and passionately believe in equality. I am a determined individual and have overcome personal barriers to achieve.

Having experienced first hand the many benefits of talking therapies throughout my adult life I believe that it has an enormous impact on mental health in society as a whole on a number of different levels.

I am also self-employed, having recently begun working in private practice in Cardiff. My journey into Counselling & Psychotherapy has been both fascinating and challenging, involving some deep soul searching and personal growth.
